Good thing, then, that it's steam, not smoke.

The fact that the climate in Moscow this track is much clearer than in southern cities. After all, this track is warm. Therefore, the same exhaust depending on the weather at different days look different. In cold weather it looks like a white cloud. This topic has been discussed many times in the Russian-speaking branches...

No, not really. I do not know what plant is that. The ones in my city run on coal, so I was wondering if that is the case here.

Glad you found it funny that I did not know what fuel is being used in a plant I know nothing about.

These are natural gas powered CHPs. They are used to produce power, hot water and home heating in large cities. They are very effective especially in winter, which is quite cold and long in Russia, you know.

This photo looks whitish as you can see. This is because of very low temperature, all the water is frozen and became ice and snow. When the temperature goes up to the zero, the landscape starts looking darker, more grayish, because the ice starts melting and everything becomes wet.

Every water steam if becoming visible during heavy frosts: the lower the temperature, the more steam you can see, as you can see the steam from the mouth when you are breath in the cold. When you burn hydrocarbons such as petrol or gas, water in vapor form is also produced. There are long and strong white traces of steam behind cars during heavy frosts while you can barely see it when it's warm outside. You can see the same effect on the picture: water vapor from the tubes became visible. In addition these CHPs work at full power when it's cold producing more exhaust and also more water vapor.

Yeah, a year-on-year recession of -3.6% or whatever it is, is hardly a "collapse." It's just a recession and everybody has them from time to time. IMF says it's starting to slowly climb back already.

Besides, housing construction in the Russian Federation reached all-time-high levels all over the place last year, and that appears to continue.

I do reckon that a few projects have stalled a bit, like the Plaza tower and the tall hotel skyscraper north of the Olympic arena, but they stalled long before the recession kicked in, for other reasons.

Didnt the collapse of the ruble harm the economy? And the fact that Russia is reliant on resource exports has been detrimental too, right?

Weak ruble helps local manufactures, also low oil prices help to change the structure of the economy, attracting investments to other areas.

Imported goods gets more expensive in rubles but domestic goods cost the same in rubles (adjusted for inflation) and much cheaper in USD or Euros. The export from Russia became very profitable.

Oil and gas export gives Russia incomes in dollar which for now is high, and in the other end more ruble to spend for the export companys!

And the domestic companys and business benifit because the lack of foreign competition due to the sanctions. It's cheaper for russians to buy domestic than imported stuff...

I must say that the sanctions imposed by EU/USA is a big failure and here in Sweden lots of farmers is now sadly out of business
